2010 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks

Pittsburgh at San Francisco

3 units on San Francisco -195 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: loss
2 units on San Francisco -1.5 runs +110 (runline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: loss
The Pirates have now run the streak of 50+ losses on the road to four seasons, with an overall record of 106-221, throwing in the 1-3 start to 2010 on the road. They now must face a hot offensive team, plating nearly 6 runs per game as well as a pitcher in Matt Cain that shut them out here on three hits in their only appearance against him in San Francisco. Cain also held them to a single run in Pittsburgh a year ago. This line may appear chalky, but under the prevailing circumstances, I see the odds of Pittsburgh getting this one at much less, so I'll go with San Francisco here.
